Pest management in crops is frequently accomplished by the use of fungal species as biopesticides. The fungi are employed as pathogens of target pests, allowing for control of the target pest populations. As a result, fungi can play an important role in managing and reducing crop damage. [1].

The following page serves as a summary of the species mentioned on the Fungi Uses in Pest Management page. The species Lecanicillium lecanii was further described on its own page.
